34 warriors arrested MOROTO-A total of 34 Karimojong warriors were last week sent to prison for four to seven years for illegal possession of firearms. The convicts, most of them Jie warriors, pleaded guilty to the charges before the Court Martial, chaired by Brig. Stephen Kashaka. “The crime attracts 10 years, but since it is your first offence, the court has reduced the jail term,” Kashaka said in his judgment. Meanwhile, four warriors from Nakilala village, Nadunget sub-county, who had spent four years on remand, were released.

Moses Ali visits Moyo ADJUMANI-The former East Moyo MP, Lt. Gen. Moses Ali, is touring Adjumani district after a three-year absence. Asked whether it was a move to prepare ground for the 2011 general elections, he said it was still early to talk about campaigns, adding that Adjumani was his home and his visit must not be interpreted as a political move. Moses Ali lost his parliamentary seat to an independent candidate, Santos Piro Erwaga, in 2006.
